JHU Student Solomon Polansky Publishes on Currency Pegs

Solomon Polansky, ’19, is a mechanical engineering major and varsity fencer. This past summer, instead of just poking around (as fencers are wont to do), Solomon had an internship at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. While at the Fed, he and Douglas Clement co-authored an interesting piece on currency pegs and why they don’t last. Their article, motivated by the Swiss National Bank’s abandonment of its floor on the value of the Swiss Franc in 2015, was recently published in the Minneapolis Fed’s The Region publication. Give it a read. Congratulations and nice work.
